Your support for Mother and Child Health is saving lives—literally.
Community health volunteers in Zambia’s Luwingu district are teaching valuable lessons on health and nutrition and treating common—but often deadly— illnesses in young children. In just the first half of this year, these linchpins of our programming shared vital information on health and hygiene with 61,712 people. Their efforts have been instrumental in helping to stem the spread of COVID-19 during the pandemic. Following safety protocols to protect staff and the public, we continued to step up efforts to educate people on safe hygiene, especially with Zambia facing a third wave of COVID-19.
